Audio Book Review: The Curse of Tenth Grave by Darynda Jones

The Curse of Tenth Grave 
(Charley Davidson Series, #10)
by Darynda Jones
Narrated by: Lorelei King

Blurb: 
If one door closes and another one opens,
your house is probably haunted. 
—Bumper Sticker

As a Part-time PI and fulltime grim reaper, Charley Davidson has asked a lot of questions throughout her life: Why can I see dead people? Who is the hot supernatural entity following me? How do I get gum out of my sister’s hair before she wakes up? But, “How do I trap not one malevolent god, but three?” was never among them. Until now. And since those gods are on earth to kill her daughter, she has little choice but to track them down, trap them, and cast them from this dimension.

There’s just one problem. One of the three stole her heart a very long time ago. Can the Razer, a god of absolute death and destruction, change his omniscient spots, or will his allegiances lie with his brothers?

Those are just a few of the questions Charley must answer, and quick. Add to that a homeless girl running for her life, an innocent man who’s been charged with murdering the daughter of a degenerate gambler, and a pendant made from god glass that has the entire supernatural world in an uproar, and Charley has her hands full. If she can manage to take care of the whole world-destroying-gods thing, we’re saved. If not, well…

Those are just some of the questions Charley must answer, and quick. Add to that a homeless girl on the run for her life, a man who's been framed for murdering a woman who is still very much alive, and a pendant made from god glass that has the entire supernatural world in an uproar, Charley has her hands full. If she can manage to take care of the whole world-destroying-gods thing, we're saved. If not, well...

Viviana's Review: 
Charley's back!! Okay, you all KNOW I LOVE Darynda and this series, however, the last book left me missing CHARLEY even though she was there.... she wasn't. This book brings back all the things we LOVE about not only CHARLEY, but the series and all the characters! We got a bit of mystery and detective work going on as Charley is a PI and all, plus her life in general being the "grim reaper" and now so much more! I had missed the weaving of those elements! 

Filled with Charley's antics and charm, the story has a great pace! We learn more about her current circumstances as she is learning them as well! There are a few surprises that give the story enough twists and that "dun dun dun" factor that will keep you on your toes and not wanting to put it down!

Still LOVING Reyes! We see a more vulnerable side to him in ""The Curse of Tenth Grave" yet we know and he demonstrates just how strong he truly is. 

Narrator's Review: It's freaking Lorelei King!! She rocks it! Giving each character LIFE and adding a layer to an already great story and series. I really can't image anyone  else narrating this series. 


Overall a great continuation of the series and leaves you craving for the next installment!!! Cannot Wait!!
